Rather good.

Out of all the fighting manga I've read, I like this one the most. I love the artwork. The artist, you can tell, has a really good grip on his trade! Personally, I think the way he never draws two people alike is awesome. The only reason I'd see for anyone to dislike it is the style.
Sure, it's fight a boss, shout about Nakama, level up, but the characters do develop. They aren't 2-D (in personality, in personality), and I, for one, find myself desperately rooting for them in every fight. I've also never gotten a feeling of "argh, hasn't this gone on long enough", as I have several times with Bleach and Naruto (I cannot say a thing about One Piece, as I haven't read that yet).

During the past few chapters,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
it's started linking the original plot (looking for Igneel and the disappearances of the dragons) with defeating Zeref, and
somehow it's starting to feel like it's finally reaching the crux of the matter, showing that all along, it DID, in fact, have a main plotline it was running on, haha. There's quite a few mysteries that I'd love to see explained, and I'm positive that they will be explained later on.

I'd recommend people to read it, though I can understand it would not be to some people's taste. It's got it's comedy, and it's seriousness, and I just really like it.

I enjoy the trivia where the author refer to his previous work. good selling strategy. The arc isn't all that bad, it's just lack tension. I think it could be better if only the author would stick to the plot in which natsu searches for igneel. But as the way it is now, it couldn't be better than umm... do excuse me  CRAP.

Suspense is missing.

This story is extremely lacking in suspense. I can't say much else because I don't want to spoil it for anyone who'd actually enjoy this series but wow you will not be feeling worried about the characters at all.

Rated 6. The only positive point I found is that the mangaka is making money so surely this story is entertaining a decent amount of people.

Plot-less and Clichfull.

I seriousley cant believe that peope are praising it. Other than its some comedic parts,its worthless both in terms of the plot and art.
Full of the annoying cliches where every enemy show after another who says the previous one was weakling where the protagonist nearly lost his life and then the new so called great enemy brags about himself and nearly overpowers protagonist.....and then? Well I am sure you can guess what happes nexy~ the most overused friendship power-up cliche.
Art is terrible especially if you are talking about female characters and so are male characters except a few. Please dont compare it to the great works like One Piece because it would be a insult.

You probably would ENJOY it like many others IF you dont mind MEANINGLESS plot with overused cliches and somewhat terrible art. If you really want to waste time then ther are thousand of other series who are FAR better than Fairy Tail both in terms of story and art.

Nakama Power!   
Rating: 1.0 / 10.0

Nakama power + asspull + nakama speech. That's it. I just describe the whole plot of this manga to you. Nothing more, nothing less. An opponent was hyped to be much stronger than hero, completely dominate hero in one chapter; no worry, 1 nakama speech, 1 power up and 1 hit KO. There's nothing unexpected in this manga. A fight between 2 character, hero wins, in a stupid way, no matter what.

Too much & distasteful fanservice. Heroines act like whores who need to show their panties & big ass boobs everywhere.

The author tries too hard to shoehorn drama into the story, but it doesn't works. Characters burst out crying every single chance they have. The emotion just isn't there. There's no such moments like Strawhat saving Nico robin, or Jiraiya death (not saying Naruto is good, but it's still better than this POS). In Fairy Tails, characters do die, just so that they can be brought back later by some asspulled plot device. And I'll say it again, the drama doesn't exist.

better than bleach

This manga is better than bleach, but of course one piece is still much better. There is really no main plot. There are a lot of subplots though which i say not bad if there is a main plot. Although the plots are a little narrow or simple, the episodes are tolerable. Hopefully each arc are longer and much more leaner or something. There are episodes that could be done in one episode...if you know what I mean.

Also it's not always about friends or nakama or guild or something. There are much more things in life than those things. Im hoping to see significant character growth in the future.

To summarize, the story lacks substance. Substance over form. Nevertheless, ft is still much better than bleach.

U mad?!

Your very average generic fighting shonen...

Not much to say. Starts funny as a lot of these manga do... and gets annoying pretty fast... and then gets more annoying... and even more... and then boring...

It is just another endless fighting shonen. You'll see the same over and over again for, like, a 1000 chapters, always the same meaningless fighting bs...

Fairy tail is better than one piece in all aspect

no repetitive plots, side characters gets to fight main boss battle unlike OP where luffy hogs all the limelight, cute and beautiful girls unlike Oda's vision of how ugly all girls should look

Fairy Tail >>>>>>>>>>>>> One piece

I would like this manga a LOT more if it had reasons for fighting besides "Nakama." Actually, sometimes it seems like the only noticeable trait of the "bad guys" is that they don't honor friendship, and Natsu goes crazy because "Nakama" is the only word he knows. I am exagerating, but I do feel that this manga focuses on that a bit too much. Other than that (and the occasional overbearing ecchi), I really enjoy this manga. Give it a read.
